Fair admissions down…

Good morning, Netizens...

We've had near-flawless weather. As this KREM picture shows, we have Michael Jackson's rides, all for free, but the admission numbers to the Spokane Interstate Fair are down this year. Although a Fair spokesman suggests it is not because of a price raise, one cannot help but wonder. In a year when budgets are tight due to the recession, people are less likely to spend money on a tight year, especially if someone raises the admission price.

According to the Fair, however, vendors are enjoying good sales, although the number of people entering the fair are down by as much as 3800 paid admissions.

Maybe things will pick up. After all, we have The Beach Boys remnants and Glen Campbell coming to town, neither of which are top-selling performers. I wouldn't pay fair admission to hear either, but then I tend to be pretty picky about what music I listen to.

Your results may differ.
